DIY Easter Decor Block

DIY Easter Decor Block

Hi there! It’s Ali from Home Crafts by Ali here this month to share a fun Easter decor project you can make for your own home. Follow this easy tutorial to make a cheerful decor piece that you can tailor to your decor colors and style.

Grab your supplies, get crafting, and you will have an Easter block ready for display in about half an hour.

Supplies Needed

Wood block (mine was scrap from a previous project)
paint
paintbrush
scrapbook paper – Easter papers or bright Spring papers
Mod Podge
Cricut cutting machine
sandpaper – optional

Note: If you don’t own a Cricut machine, you can still make this project. You can buy a stencil of a font you like and trace the letter then cut them out, or use your printer to print your favorite font onto the paper you will be using and cut out the letters.

Check your wood block to see what condition it is in. If there are rough edges, you may need to use a bit of sandpaper to smooth the edges.

Wood block dimensions – 10.75 inch x 3 inch
Scrapbook letter/image size – 2 inches tall

Directions

  1. Paint your block with a base coat of white. I always start with a white coat because you never know how much paint will be absorbed into the block and you might as well start with a plain color instead of your nice colorful mix.
  2. Instead of using just a plain color on my painted crafts, I mix white with my chosen color to have a slightly marbled effect. I don’t fully mix the two colors before painting. As you can see in the top right picture, there are different shades of pink on my block. I think it makes a nice visual background to my block. Let your paint dry while you cut out the letters.
  3. Use your Cricut machine (Silhouette machine, stencil, or printer and scissors) to cut your scrapbook papers. I downloaded a free font from dafont.com for my EASTER letters. It is called KG Begin Again and I thought it was perfect for an Easter craft. I found a free silhouette of an egg and cut that as well.
  4. Lay out your letters and egg on the block so you know the perfect spacing before you glue your paper to the block.
  5. Using a paintbrush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the back of your paper and place on the block. For the egg piece, you need to make sure you apply it smoothly so there are no air bubbles between the block and the paper.
  6. Paint a light layer of Mod Podge over the top of your project as a sealer.

That’s it! You now have a new piece to add to your Easter decor this year!
